I was looking through some old newspapers articles and this one caught my eye. As I read this 1936 Wyoming article I was thinking how things haven’t changed much; we want to preserve our history. Then I read the list of things to remember… really?
Civic Pride 1936
Page 8 Column 4
Article Title: Lest Ye Forget

Retired General Motors designer who now works on subjects dealing with genealogy.
I create trees using items I find in old Google News Archive newspapers and I contact other tree owners notifying them about the news item concerning their relative and send them a link to the tree I created. I post a screen print of the news item on the tree for others to copy, so that my work will benefit others.
Occasionally, I will post about the tree I created or the item that I found, always with a "how to" in-bedded in the post. I want my blog posts to help others with their family trees or with their genealogy experiences.
